Hunterworks Machined Sheave Coating
We coat all new machined sheaves with a new Hunterworks proprietary dry lube to make our sheaves last longer than any other one and reduce friction inside the sheave where the weights move.
If you were to look at metal through a microscope it would like a rocky rough terrain which causes friction. This is where this new Hunterworks coating comes in. At only .5 microns the individual particles are so small the human eye can't see them, the human eye can only see down to about 30 microns.
So basically we apply the coating to the insides of the sheave covering up all the surfaces that the weights and slides touch then when you assemble the sheave, the weights and slides essentially burnish the material down into the rough metal, down into the pours if you will then any excess turns to dust that gets taken away with the air moving around inside the clutch.
Now the metal that was once rough microscopically is smooth and these particles that filled it in, can't be removed. If you wanted to remove them you would have to sand them out.
What is the coating? Not gonna tell this one, tried spray teflon and it worked ok but this one has less friction on bare metal than teflon. It is a very slick coating
Result? Longer lasting clutch sheave, less heat, smoother shifting, weights and slides last longer. Just trying to one up the competition I guess and make our product better, we are the only ones that coat our sheaves with anything.
I guess it is common sense, the less friction the better.
